Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 Gamesave Exploit

Post by GoTeamScotch »

Sharing because I couldn't find any posts in the forums mentioning it and its a cool development considering how there's only a small handful of games that are exploitable.

I was perusing discord's open source Xbox live channel catching up on what I've missed and stumbled across this message from last March that I wanted to share:

after looking through a few of them I quickly found 3 games with the potential for a save game code execution vulnerability
I tried one of them, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, and it's exploitable through a hacked park file

here is a shitty cell phone video of my hacked save booting my nyan cat xbe

Sure enough, Rocky's already been using it in his softmod installer since about April so idk if I'm out of touch or if Rocky is just that in the know (probably both)! :lol:
